Rondo is old and playing major minutes for the first time in a long time. Why are people worried or concerned he needs to ramp up to it?
When you’re 35 you can’t alway just get “loose”. Probably the issue here. Maintenance day.

Was reading an AMA with a former NBA ball boy. When asked which player was the biggest asshole,

“Rondo. He had a thing called ‘Rondo boot camp’ where he would just yell at me and everyone else to run around him. He would pass balls to us when we weren’t looking even though he was suppose to be shooting. He would pass balls to other players while they were shooting and not looking so then we had to fetch it. And he would just slap balls out of our hands after rebounding and say ‘you gotta be ready kid’ and then would pass a ball to my temple as hard as humanely possible. He also never tipped which my income was pretty much all tips”

Beginning to think bringing this guy in was not such a great idea after all. At first I thought he was just like Rubio. Now, don't think so. Hope I'm wrong.

You see Allen doing that? Mobley? Garland? Cedi? Lauri? Love?

Yeah… I'm pretty sure we have nobody else on this team who'd get a kick out of tormenting ball boys – and then not even tipping them.

Fuck this dude…

From nice, well mannered Rubio to the devil himself...

They traded Denzel Valentine for him.

Guy could not play another second for the team and it still wouldn’t be “not such a great idea”.

They gave up nothing to get him.

Nah. I've never been pro Rondo. Bringing him in was a bad idea, and I've been saying it from the start. I don't think he fits the culture of this team, and I don't think he's capable of playing substantial minutes at backup PG for a winning team like this.

I understand I may look like an irrational hater right now, with everyone being in love with Rondo – hey, we "gave up nothing" to get him. But we'll see who was right at the end of the season. It's not the point that we gave up nothing… as the main backup PG (if he ever gets healthy), Rondo has a huge responsibility and he can also fuck up a lot of things for us.

Does it matter that he's also an arrogant asshole? Maybe it does. This is a team of dudes with low level egos and team-centric mentalities. Chemistry matters. Character matters.

Need to fret, you are indeed incorrect!

Minimal risk, upside is a good veteran point guard for literally no assets sent out in the trade.

Eh....

Yes, it sounds like Rondo was being a dick. But there isn't any date that report - it could be from 2009 or something - and he presumably isn't acting like that with the Cavs. So far, everything that's come out about his time with the Cavs has been positive.

If and when problems with the Cavs emerge, I'll pay attention. Until then...I really don't care.

Neither do I...I like the acquisition.

but it's clear Rubio is a gentle missionary, vagina only type of guy where Rondo is a ruthless reverse cowboy anal penetrator.

I hope Rondo bursts through the wall like the kool-aid man and slaps Lauri, Mobley, and Allen's hands everytime they try picking something up. The team needs some butterfinger training.

I hope he at least tips them.

I have a relative pretty high up in the NBA administration. Told me that Rondo is one of the biggest assholes he’s ever met and this is widely known. This is based on recent interaction.

So that’s just another way he can never replace Rubio. But damn he’s a smart player on the court.
